Edits to Bundles
Deepak Rai Sharma added a ninth use case to the Integration of Manufacturing Execution Systems ES bundle, clearly describing ways that production managers can benefit from the information to be gained from various enterprise services. Nine use cases is a record for any ES bundle, Deepak! Thanks for the excellent contribution!
Eric Bushman added a new use case to the Electronic Bill Presentment and Payment ES bundle, explaining how to make a credit card payment using the Order to Cash workflow in SAP ERP. Great stuff, Eric!
Gerlinde Graewe thoroughly revised the Demand Planning ES bundle, providing careful explanation of features and additional use cases, including a Duet use case with Microsoft Excel consuming enterprise services.

Mario Herger made substantial and important updates to Current Account Management - Business Operations and Loans Management - Business Operations. Mario also edited Sales and Service - Account Origination and Course Approval Processes.
Info about Integrating Microsoft Outlook
To store e-mail correspondence as simply and efficiently as possible, an extension was implemented in Microsoft Outlook that leverages the TDMC ES bundle. Using the TDMC ES it is possible to transfer individual e-mails or entire e-mail folders from Microsoft Outlook to the SAP PLM DMS.
The solution that has been implemented by SAP consulting has been described in the article "Taking IT Management Further with Enterprise Services - A Practical Example" that has been published in the ProduktData Journal (No. 2 – 2007).
Bettina Lieske added a code sample from Gert Schneider showing how the Find Health Professional By Elements enterprise service can be called from a Microsoft Visual Studio application. She not only edited the enterprise service page, but added this tip to the ES bundle page for the Foundation for Collaborative Health Networks ES bundle. Kudos, Bettina!

He describes the pain points they were experiencing and exactly how they deployed the bundle, including the systems used for design time and run time. Great work, Olaf!
Certified Partner Info
Mustafa Saglam added Certified Partner information to the Electronic Bill Presentment and Payment ES bundle using a macro. We like to see examples of automatically included content in the wiki; it's easy to keep it up to date that way.
Test Data/Usage Notes
Marcel Podieh added great test data to the Find Customer Address Basic Data by Name and Address enterprise service, illustrating how you can use it if you only have part of a customer's name or other information. This service is reused many times to find customers, so test data is especially valuable here. Thanks, Marcel!
